A true throwback to the days of boat building craftsmanship, the Little Bear immediately makes one think of a restful afternoon on the lake, of fishing at sunrise and of gliding along listening to the lapping waves. Taking over 300 hours to create, this water vessel is one with which anyone would instantly fall in love.

Beginning with pliable, high quality Canadian cedar, our craftsmen hand join each individual strip. Hundreds of hours go into the construction of our boats, as perfection is the only option.
